"In a Nutshell" is an ongoing series, reminding myself that's it okay to look back on mini-accomplishments before focusing on the now.
For those that don't know, I started working with a new company this month with an amazing schedule that has given me more time with the boys. You guys, that is such a big deal for me! The Watkinez boys are still at an age where they actually want to hang out with Pat and me, so I want to soak it all in while I can. We are still getting used to the new schedule which is the reason why I have been relatively sporadic on Instagram this month.
In regards to art & inspiration, here is September in a nutshell!
I have brought back the ColorFUN Classroom as a monthly series. You can subscribe to the channel here!
Some of my recent IG posts are becoming cards, like this one.
Being featured is always flattering, but I tend to get extra giddy when it's international - haha! And yes, I totally used Google translate to see what they wrote.
My DuckTales obsession continues with a fun round up.
My mom, sister, and I were a part of the flash mob in the premiere episode of Dancing with the Stars, Season 25! You can't see us, but I pinky promise we were at the 7-hour shoot that night.
I got to see Jimmy Eat World for the second time this year and OMG, the Majestic Theater is gorgeous. I cannot wait to go to another show at that venue.
I teamed up with Magical Monograms for another awesome design for Halloween!
Louie is in full Disneyland-obsessed mode, so we made sure to visit to see the new Halloween-decor at Disney California Adventure. Video is coming soon!
Many thanks to my lovely patrons for supporting my art this past month! It has been challenging to keep up with the weekly journal podcast but it is so fun that I really want to keep it going. Per the recent poll, you would like to see more crafts so I'll make sure to bring those soon.
Fried egg fabric (pictured above) is available here.
Thanks for the fun, September!
Who's ready for some major Halloween vibes in October? I am!
